The Crowhurst Family

We are a group of people who are inspired by the ministry and person of Jesus to bring His healing and wholeness to all people.

The Crowhurst family is much larger than the 20 paid staff responsible for administration, housekeeping, catering, site maintenance and the gardens.

Leadership comes from the Senior Chaplain, Chaplain with Centre Oversight, the Administration Manager and the Trustee Body.

Our Senior Chaplain is Reverend Steve Gendall who was appointed in September 2012. 

Suzanne Owen has been our Chaplain with Centre Oversight since October 2016.  

John Brown was appointed as Administration Manager in September 2018.

Friends of Crowhurst Christian Healing Centre

This is anybody who loves the place and the ministry that Jesus conducts here. We rely on those who visit to publicise the work and we supply them with publicity to share with friends, family and churches. The enthusiasm of someone who has been blessed by God is the very best publicity
